Amy Winehouse taken to hospital after collapsing at home

The Superficial / June 16, 2008

Amy Winehouse collapsed in her home today while “doing admin” (Read: A high-top sneaker stuffed with blow.) when she suffered a fainting spell and was caught by her assistant. She quickly recovered and is resting at a private hospital for precautionary measures, according to BBC News:

Her manager’s assistant was able to stop her falling and Winehouse’s father, Mitch, escorted her to hospital “as a precaution”, the spokesman said.
Doctors are unsure as to the cause of the incident and the star may be kept in hospital overnight for observation.
The 24-year-old had been signing autographs for Canadian fans who had been waiting outside her house all day, her spokesman said.

“Doctors are unsure as to the cause of the incident.” Really? Because I’m pretty sure it was a shitload of drugs. I don’t have a Ph.D., but I think I’ve got this one figured out. So how bout letting me give surgery a crack? True, I’ve got really shaky hands from drinking too much coffee, but I don’t think that should stop us. Wait, hold on, I’m blacking out from the narcolepsy. …. And we’re back. Scalpel!

NOTE: The above pic is Amy waiting for the ambulance to show up while her Canadian fan screams with joy and, I’ll assume, debilitating alcoholism.
